Getting service to RV by FR Techs

Both our A/C's don't work, outside kitchen taps need to be switched so that the hot is on the left and one burner inside on cooktop won't start unless manually lit. The last two repairs I am sure that the FR Techs can handle in Goshen. But what about my A/C? Any idea if I can expect them to fix this there? I don't have enough time between now and August 4 to drop our unit at our dealer and reasonably expect them to fix it (which I believe may need new units) and still have the unit back in time to go to Goshen.
What kinds of repairs do they do in Goshen and any idea if they can fix our A/C???
Thanks in advance,
Cathy

I suppose it depends on what is wrong with your air conditioner(s).
Am I right that BOTH your air conditioners are acting up?

There is power, they both turn on and appear to function at a distant glance. We were away this past weekend. It was 78 degrees outside and inside the RV it heated up to 89 degrees. We turned the A/C on for the first time ever since getting it. The main A/C in the LR works but inefficiently as after 5 hours on full blast it went down to 81. The bedroom unit keeps cycling on and off frequently and doesn't cool. It is more like a big roof fan-a very noisy one at that which is a common complaint with these.

And yes, hubby has checked the brakers. Unfortunately that is not the problem.

Changing the hot & cold water lines is an easy fix, just shut the pump & city water supply off, remove the faucet assy and switch the lines. Usually doesn't even require a wrench/pliers.

Our furnace has not worked since we bought our rig and I am requesting it to be repaired in Goshen. We had a mobile tech come out but they couldn't tell what was wrong! I hope they can fix it in Goshen too since our dealer is several hundred miles from us! I sure hope Goshen can handle your repairs too! After all....they ARE the experts!

I'd be surprised if you need the furnace in August. Now that doesn't stop anyone from spooning....but I'm guessing it will probably be hot. Guess I'll have to drink a lot of cold bevvies to help cool myself!
